A passenger lift will typically carry a sign indicating its carrying capacity in kilograms and the number of people it can accommodate. This activity allows students to compare these data collected from a selection of passenger lifts in the UK and Europe. Students can interrogate the data in various ways to see if:


  • the relationship between number of people and mass in kg is consistent;
  • there is any difference between lifts in UK and other EU countries.


The tns file includes instructions and there are 3 pages of teacher notes.
